Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: Down to the River to Pray
Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Down to the River to Pray
Happened to catch this one on PalTalk one night while slumming in one of those gospel-bluegrass rooms where people play records and CDs to each other all night. Sometimes they (including, in some cases, the kids and the hawn'dawg) attempt to sing along, and that can get really entertaining! They were really nice folk though, and i enjoyed kibitzing with 'em. One lady played a really C/W version of "Down to the River"; I'd never heard it before, but really liked it.

Does anyone know where I might pirate a MIDI or score of it on the internet somewhere? I don't think I remember the melody well enough to wing it just yet, but would like to try it. I think that it might be rather well suited to the "Minstrel" banjo..
